Out of the stone age -- for another year or two!

My dev workstation as of two days ago was about 5 years old. As usual it is so much trouble to recreate the work environment that you have accumulated over such a long time that performance has to get *really* bad before I'm willing to upgrade to a new system.

What is not obvious is that's two quad-core 64-bit CPUs. Along w/8GB of RAM, I am now a *much* happier camper! My qualitative experience exceeds what Vista tells me it is, and that's not bad.

Let's see how long this lasts before I'm waiting on disk swapping again....
